Eastern gray squirrels have a high enough tolerance for humans to inhabit residential neighborhoods and will raid bird feeders for millet, corn, and sunflower seeds. Wikipedia
Hunting by Human is always unsuitable for environment across the world.
They are still hunted in the US for meat.
Oh nice capture... but for this fur they were hunted once upon a time....
Thanks...they are clever. I'm a bit annoyed with them right now because they are eating my wonderful mangoes from a small tree with just a few fruit.
Nice portrait! They love suet, too. One squirrel had trouble opening a small suet feeder in my yard and just took off with the whole thing to open it at his or her leisure. I gave chase but couldn't catch up!
